We are 3 months into 2017. Many moons ago, on a snowy New Year’s Eve many of us made healthy resolutions and now it is the time to stick to those commitments (or maybe some of “us” need to re-commit to them). A visit to the Healthy Family Expo is going to make your healthy-lifestyle resolutions seem like the best decision you ever made. More than 200 exhibitors will be on hand showcasing eco-friendly, healthy and active solutions for all aspects of your life.

Seriously, how does the Healthy Family Expo not sound like a perfect outing for the entire family? Food sampling, shopping, resources & tools for the parents; play time and entertainment for the kids. That’s a big win-win in my books.

Second, we have a discount code for our wonderful Family Fun Vancouver readers (see the details below).
